    Default Austin, TX at the Frank Erwin Center - May 19, 2015

    Great show! The setlist is unchanged; the banter is essentially the same. Despite that, it didn't seem stale to me. They had a funky groove going on all night, and I loved it.

    There were a few vocal problems at first, but nothing awful and once they warmed up, those faded.

    Joe changed some aspects of his guitar solos, most noticeably Life in the Fast Lane. Very cool.

    Heartache Tonight seemed different from the way they've been doing it. It's not back to the studio version but it's closer.

    The guys seemed to be in a good mood and laughed a lot. They had cute interactions with each other throughout the night. The crowd was lively overall.

    Looks-wise, there are some changes! It's the end of an era: Glenn has allowed his hair to go gray. HB liked it. Dreamer and I think it ages him, but he's still looking good.

    Timothy has a very bushy white goatee. His hair also had more gray than I remember it having last year. He looked very grizzled.

    Glenn wore his typical jeans / white t-shirt/ blue over shirt for the first part and changed to a peach over shirt for the second half (yay)! Don shaved since Saturday, but his outfit was the same black/white/gray plaid shirt and jeans throughout. Joe wore a plaid shirt first, then a Dracula fangs tshirt. Timothy wore a red plaid shirt. Bernie wore a plain black t-shirt with a plaid over shirt.

    The show was a lot of fun and I saw many happy customers around me, myself included. A promising start to the leg!

    PS sorry this is so scanty but I wanted to give a quick update before bed.

    Sounds great! I had thought Glenn would try going gray as he seems to have been leaning that way over the past while. I've noticed some streaks, getting more pronounced in some of the interviews he has done of late. I'd be interested to see a pic though!
    I've seen on FB that the usual rules re photography applied!!

    Glad you all had a great time anyway. Hopefully this is NOT the last leg and I too will get to see even one more show.

    Thanks for the titbits to keep us going until the full review. It's funny how after a break it can seem fresh again - even just reading the reports.

    I'm glad it went well!! I'm definitely seeing a lot of post-concert tweets that agree that it was a great concert. I've not seen any negative tweets at all except for one that complained about it being 'hot and sticky' in the arena. One man called it the best night of his life.

    I found these as well...

    I can't wait to see it! I bet it still makes me want to run my fingers through it...

    Saw this on Twitter this morning - looks like the concert was really enjoyed by all!! Great to see that they've still got it and I hope that will continue on with another leg of the HOTE tour - in Europe

    These are screenshots I took of someone who had posted a short video of HC (link at the bottom of post) - couldn't get any close ups of Glenn and Timothy


    Don looks really well with the extra short hair and bare chin !!


    Joe looking cool as usual:


    Steuart rocking it:

    Sounds like they were in good form again! Thanks guys!

    Did Dreamer get a good seat?

    I don't mind Glenn going gray. He has such wonderful hair, it doesn't matter! Just keep it a little longer, please!

    Someone got brave with the pics!

    Hmmm... "final lap". Words that should never be uttered. I hope he realizes a lap = a year, so they are starting their final year of this tour. According to the math in my little world.

    There are quite a few photos in that link. I suppose Glenn's hair is grey. I guess it had to happen.
